Post image for 2018 Associate Artist – Georgina Oakes

We’re excited to announce Ensemble Offspring’s first-ever Associate Artist is clarinettist, Georgina Oakes. 

Georgina returns from 10 years in Europe to wow us with her new music pedigree – having worked with the likes of Pierre Boulez and Tristan Murail. We can’t wait to welcome her on board. 

We were overwhelmed by the standard of the applications we received from instrumentalists countrywide. It was indeed a pleasure to read and listen to all of this wonderful music and choosing a single candidate from so many great ones was no mean feat!

Clarinetist, Georgina Oakes, is inspired by the process of collaboration, experimentation and vivification of rarely heard works of new music. After 9 years honing her craft as a performer in Europe, in 2018 Georgina returned to her hometown of Sydney and is Ensemble Offspring’s Hatched Academy Associate Artist. Georgina has been awarded the Australian Music Foundation Young Musician Award, Swiss Thyll-Dürr Foundation Award and was a finalist in the Viennese Casino Austria Rising Stars Award. Having researched Boulez’s clarinet concerto Domaines through her postgraduate studies in Austria, a major highlight of 2017 was her performance of this masterwork with the Webern Kammerphilharmonie, Vienna.


The Hatched Academy is supported by the City of Sydney and the APRA AMCOS Music Grants Program.
